What to ask when looking for high-quality cannabis oil

What to ask when looking for high-quality cannabis oil

There are a few things to look for when you shop for cannabis oil. Here are some tips:

 

  • What type of oil is it? First of all, you’ll want to check the label to make sure you’re getting the right type of oil: THC, CBD, a combination of the two, or a full-spectrum extract. 

 

  • What is the potency? Cannabis oils vary in potency. Some are quite high in THC, for example, while others are lower-dose. Check the labels and pick a potency that suits your needs. And if you aren’t sure how much to use, start with a lower-dose oil and build your way up until you get the results you want. 

 

  • What is the carrier oil? As mentioned earlier, most producers use coconut oil, olive oil, or MCT oil to dilute the cannabis oil for more precise dosing. But something further to note is that the type of carrier oil used may affect the taste of the product. MCT and olive oil are virtually flavourless on their own and can be seamlessly added to salad dressings without affecting the taste. Coconut oil however can have unique taste that’s more at home in smoothies. All three types of oil also have added health benefits you can read about here.

 

  • What is the terpene profile? If you’re buying a full-spectrum oil, you’ll want to check the terpene profile. Most producers list the terpene content on their labels. If you aren’t sure what to look for, check out this guide to different terpenes and their possible benefits. 

 

  • Is it full-spectrum or distillate? Full-spectrum cannabis oils contain a variety of cannabinoids, including potential trace amounts of THC. Distillate cannabis oils undergo further refining processes to isolate desired cannabinoids; this means distillate cannabis oils are a great choice for patients that do not want THC in their cannabis oil.
